Notes 
 Who else will the Tigers turn to?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
I loved Stroman this year in the NL without the DH and in some friendly parks. Now, he is hurt and the NL has a DH. Corona threw cold water on my sizzle for Stroman, but I still like him enough to write him up here.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Although Jimenez's numbers weren't pretty in 2019, he actually performed fairly well once the Tigers turned over the closer role to him. He'll never be a top-tier closer, particularly given that Detroit is unlikely to compete, but considering he's under team control for several more seasons, he should be given every chance to hold the job all year.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Stroman is the type of pitcher you want when chasing volume. Usually that's reserved for points-based leagues, but he's an intriguing option in category leagues this year, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Stroman had an excellent 2019 season, though he struggled somewhat after his trade to the Mets. The one thing missing, however, finally arrived, as his strikeout rate popped to over one per inning when he got to New York. After spending all offseason strengthening his core and now in a contract year, Stroman should be in a position to provide plenty of value pitching with a full year in the National League.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Marcus Stroman becomes a much more interesting fantasy option with his move to the Mets. He averaged a K per inning and changed his approach a bit after moving to the NL. As someone who never bought into Stroman, this is the first year where I am likely to take the chance.
